Baby named Frankenstein born at Florida hospital on Halloween

Healthy boy arrives 4 days after due date

Oskar Gray Frankenstein

WINTER PARK, Fla. – One Altamonte Springs couple got an extra treat for Halloween.

Their baby, Oskar Gray Frankenstein, was born at Winter Park Memorial Hospital at 2:57 p.m. Tuesday.

Kyle and Jessica Frankenstein were planning to welcome their baby boy into the world Saturday, but grandmother Jennifer Frankenstein said her family had a suspicion that little Oskar's birth would coincide with the holiday.

"He was due four days ago and he decided to wait until Halloween,” Jennifer Frankenstein said.

Oskar's arrival came after about 14 hours of labor and false alarm Monday.

Jennifer Frankenstein said Oskar is her first grandchild and the first with her namesake born on Halloween, although she does have a 13-year-old daughter who shares the same birthday as "Frankenstein" author Mary Shelley.

“Everybody’s safe and sound and we’re super excited,” Jennifer Frankenstein said.
